PRECAUTION WHEN USING SPEEDOMETER TESTER

NOTICE:

  • A tester with a load setting mechanism for 2 wheels only cannot be used by itself.
  • Perform the inspection on the front wheels.
  • Do not start off, accelerate or decelerate suddenly.
  • The vehicle speed should be 60 km/h (37 mph) or less. (When a free roller is in use, the vehicle speed should be 50 km/h (31 mph) or less)
  • The driving time should be within 1 minute.

(a) Method for entering AWD control prohibited mode

NOTICE:

  • AWD control prohibited mode ends by turning the ignition switch off. Therefore, in order to continue inspection after the ignition switch is turned off, perform the procedure to enter AWD control prohibited mode again.
  • Do not drive the vehicle with AWD control prohibited mode still active.
  • Perform steps (*C) through (*F) within 120 seconds.
  • If entering AWD control prohibited mode cannot be confirmed, turn the ignition switch off and repeat the procedure from step (*A).
  • When turning the brake pedal ON/OFF, securely perform the action of depressing/releasing the pedal until the stop light switch turns on/off.
  • When turning the parking brake ON/OFF, perform the action of releasing/applying the brake until the parking brake indicator light in the combination meter assembly turns on/off.

(1) Ensure that the ignition switch is off and the engine is stopped (Step "A").

(2) Turn the ignition switch ON (Step "B").

(3) Apply the parking brake (Step "C").

(4) Depress and release the brake pedal twice (Step "D").

(5) While holding the brake pedal down, release and apply the parking brake twice (Step "E").

(6) With the parking brake applied, depress and release the brake pedal twice (Step "F").

(7) Check that "AWD TEST MODE" is displayed on the multi-information display (Step "G"). (Check that AWD control is prohibited)

(b) When using speedometer tester

(1) Place the front wheels onto the roller.

(2) Place the rear wheels onto the free roller or safety stand.

(3) Secure the vehicle with lock chains.

HINT:

The position of the lock chain in the illustration is for reference only.

(4) Gradually increase the vehicle speed and perform the measurement.

(5) Slowly decelerate by the brake and stop the vehicle after the measurement.

NOTICE:

Do not use the parking brake. If brake is applied only on the rear wheels during high engine speed, it may cause AWD function effectiveness to decline, drivetrain parts to malfunction or the vehicle to move unexpectedly.

(c) Cancel AWD control prohibited mode

(1) Turn the ignition switch off, wait for 60 seconds or more and cancel AWD control prohibited mode.

NOTICE:

Turn the ignition switch off when 60 seconds or more have elapsed since the AWD control prohibited mode was entered. If the ignition switch is turned off within 60 seconds, AWD control prohibited mode continues when the ignition switch is turned ON again.

(2) Check that "AWD TEST MODE" is not displayed on the multi-information display. (Check AWD control starts)

PRECAUTION WHEN USING BRAKE TESTER

NOTICE:

  • A tester with a load measurement mechanism cannot be used.
  • A high-speed type brake tester cannot be used.

(a) Method for entering AWD control prohibited mode

NOTICE:

  • AWD control prohibited mode ends by turning the ignition switch off. Therefore, in order to continue inspection after the ignition switch is turned off, perform the procedure to enter AWD control prohibited mode again.
  • Do not drive the vehicle with AWD control prohibited mode still active.
  • Perform steps (*C) through (*F) within 120 seconds.
  • If entering AWD control prohibited mode cannot be confirmed, turn the ignition switch off and repeat the procedure from step (*A).
  • When turning the brake pedal ON/OFF, securely perform the action of depressing/releasing the pedal until the stop light switch turns on/off.
  • When turning the parking brake ON/OFF, perform the action of releasing/applying the brake until the parking brake indicator light in the combination meter assembly turns on/off.

(1) Ensure that the ignition switch is off and the engine is stopped (Step "A").

(2) Turn the ignition switch ON (Step "B").

(3) Apply the parking brake (Step "C").

(4) Depress and release the brake pedal twice (Step "D").

(5) While holding the brake pedal down, release and apply the parking brake twice (Step "E").

(6) With the parking brake applied, depress and release the brake pedal twice (Step "F").

(7) Check that "AWD TEST MODE" is displayed on the multi-information display (Step "G"). (Check that AWD control is prohibited)

(b) When using brake tester

(1) Place the wheels to be tested (front or rear) onto the roller.

(2) Move the shift lever to N.

(3) Drive the roller of the brake tester and measure.

HINT:

The driving time should be within 1 minute.

(c) Cancel AWD control prohibited mode

(1) Turn the ignition switch off, wait for 60 seconds or more and cancel AWD control prohibited mode.

NOTICE:

Turn the ignition switch off when 60 seconds or more have elapsed since the AWD control prohibited mode was entered. If the ignition switch is turned off within 60 seconds, AWD control prohibited mode continues when the ignition switch is turned ON again.

(2) Check that "AWD TEST MODE" is not displayed on the multi-information display. (Check AWD control starts)

PRECAUTION WHEN USING CHASSIS DYNAMOMETER

(a) for 2-wheel Chassis Dynamometer or 4-wheel Driven Chassis Dynamometer (Electric Front/back Synchronized Type):

Disconnect the propeller shaft assembly and AWD ECU assembly connector and set the system to the AWD control operation prohibited condition.

    • (*2): Do not use the electric front/back synchronized type 4-wheel driven chassis dynamometer with the propeller shaft assembly installed since the drivetrain may be damaged. (However, use with the propeller shaft assembly removed is possible)

(1) for 2-wheel Chassis Dynamometer or 4-wheel Driven Chassis Dynamometer (Electric Front/back Synchronized Type):

Connect the propeller shaft assembly and AWD ECU assembly connector and set the system to the AWD control operation permitted condition.

NOTICE:

After measuring, make sure to connect the propeller shaft assembly and AWD ECU assembly connector.

(2) With the AWD operation status display shown on the multi-information display, drive the vehicle and check that 1 or more graduations are displayed for any wheel when accelerating.

CAUTIONS FOR TOWING

(a) Tow the vehicle with all 4 wheels on the ground or lifted up. When towing the vehicle with all 4 wheels on the ground, limit the tow speed to 30 km/h (19 mph) or less and the tow distance to 80 km (50 miles) or less, and tow the vehicle in the forward direction.

NOTICE:

If the vehicle is towed above this speed and beyond this distance or is towed in reverse direction, the transaxle may be affected or damaged.

(b) Do not tow with only the front or rear wheels lifted up. If the driving system or drivetrain is malfunctioning, transport the vehicle with all 4 wheels lifted up.
